Ficino Ensemble was formed by Artistic Director Nathan Sherman in 2012 as a flexible group aiming to perform popular chamber music alongside lesser known works that deserve to be appreciated.

The Quartet features four outstanding musicians who are building an impressive reputation and an exciting repertoire. Their fascinating programme opens with the joyful ease of Mozart’s ‘Dissonance’ Quartet, moves into Deirdre McKay’s contemplation of ‘the vast quietude of space’ and ends in the alternately riveting and beautiful Bartokian world of Ligeti’s first quartet.
